One the days that I take Ben to preschool I spend the drive back home planning my day. I think about all of the things that I am going to get done and how organized and productive I will be. By the time I get home and unload the car I am exhausted from all of my productivity and need to take a nap. And next thing I know it is 6:00 and I have gotten nothing done. It is a vicious cycle.

Okay. I have to say it. I have the easiest baby in the world. Sam just sleeps and eats and barely cries. He smiles all the time and only wakes me up twice per night, sometimes once. I know. All of you moms and dads with colicky, sleepless babies hate me. As well you should. It is not right to be free of sleep deprivation with an infant. It just feels wrong. Feel free to hate me. All I can say is that maybe the karma is evening out after my HORRIBLE pregnancies. They say you get what you can handle and apparently I can’t handle much. But if I were to write a letter to baby Sam it would simply say: “Thank you”.

big ol’ bowl of coffee almond fudge ice cream = priceless
